Re: font randomly gets blocky

However, I've created a simple flowchart with a few
elipses and labels. Normally, the font looks fine
(where fine == nice,clean freetype), but once in a 
while, the labels for objects that aren't being edited
will suddenly go blocky (as if switching to a bitmap
font). Selecting the object (either with the mouse or
with ctrl-a) will cause the font to switch back.

Any idea what is causing this?

We know that it started after switching to Pango (Gtk2), but apart from
that it's fairly mysterious.  I suspect an alpha channel being converted
from 8 bit to 1 bit, but have found nothing to prove it yet.
